EU ETS allocation

Support to Dutch emission authority on EU ETS allocation

We support the Dutch emission authority (NEA) in preparing the national implementation measures that determine the allocation of emission allowances for Dutch participants in the EU Emission Trading scheme for the period 2013 – 2020. Building on the expertise developed in projects for the European Commission (EC), Ecofys experts operate a telephone and e-mail helpdesk and assist the competent authority in The Netherlands in checking the requested allocation for the industry. For complex cases, Ecofys prepared input material to guide the decision making committee consisting of the emission authority and the relevant ministries in The Netherlands. Our support brings relief to the NEA in a very hectic period full of time pressures and a high workload.
